Talk about bad luck. Troy Walker lost his chance to bowl a perfect game on his final ball thanks to a mechanical error. Walker was attempting his 12th straight strike when a mechanical error caused the lane’s arm to drop just before the ball reached the pins. He was given a second attempt, and left three pins standing to finish with a 297.
